 --A polynomial is factored completely when it is ex pressed as the product of a monomial and one or more prime polynomials. Guide lines for Factoring Completely 1) Factor out the greatest monomial factor first. 2) Look for a difference of squares . 3) Look for a perfect square trinomial. 4) If a trinomial is not a square , look for a pair of binomial factors. 5) If a polynomial has four or more terms, look for a way to group the terms in pairs . 6) Make sure that you check that each binomial or trinomial factor is a prime. 7) Check your work by multiplying the factors .
